Case Basse di Gianfranco Soldera Toscana Sangiovese 2008 aka Brunello di Montalcino Riserva
  • $ 500.00

After the highly unusual and exotic 2007, the 2008 Toscana Sangiovese marks a return to a more classic Soldera style. Here the flavors are quite bold and savory, while the structure is that of a wine built for aging. Sage, rosemary, tobacco, mint and leather notes wrap around a core of dark red stone fruits as this vivid, crystalline wine shows off its personality and pedigree. Readers lucky enough to find the 2008 are in for a thrill.  -Antonio Galloni - Antonio Galloni's Vinous, February 2015

Please note that as of 2007, Gianfranco Soldera started bottling his Brunello as an Toscana IGT.  Rather than get into the back story of why he must do this let me just state this...It is a Brunello but for now on we'll just call it a "de-classified" Brunello di Montalcino.  And it is AMAZING!
